Two weeks with no internet meant only one thing, more sewing time and although I did get quite a lot done it still wasn't as much as I had hoped. The tv was to blame. I sat watching films as a substitute for surfing the web but at least my hands were free to do necessary hand stitching.
Rather than bombard you with everything in one post I'll do several posts over the next few days.
First of all I want to say a big thank you to all who sent me birthday wishes. I couldn't for the life of me work out where you all found out when it was. I thought I'd been hacked and then I came across this post 'In honor of YOU' by my dear friend Samantha from At home with Mrs H. Isn't she the sweetest and it also explains where everyone found out from.
Ok, moving on now, I want to tell you about the Kennedy Bag I tested for Sara at Sew Sweetness. Finished just in time before I went offline. Guess what, this is a free pattern and you can download it here at SewMamaSew.
Finished Size: 14” long x 11” tall x 5” deep
I couldn't get hold of the buckles that Sara used on her bag so I bought these instead.
I used upholstery fabric for the main part of the bag which I quilted to keep the batting in place as I couldn't use fusible batting on this fabric.
Inside there are two slip pockets and a large zipper pocket.
Next post I'll show you the kind of weather we've been having. Perfect for sewing days.
